MBAM Support - please advise.

We are also getting this same alert on all workstations.

this alert also appears to have caused all workstations to reboot, which included our 911 dispatch center. A random reboot of computers that critical is extremely bad.

Is this a false positive? If so, what is the remediation?


thank you

Please update from your Management Console the Database for affected systems.

We confirmed this was a False Positive and have removed from detection moving forward. Apologies for any inconvenience.

The issue should no longer occur on or past Database version:

Please let us know if you are on this latest database or newer and still continue to receive detection's?
